A study of American households shows that there is an average of 2.55 persons in one home and there is an average of 2.73 televisions per household. So basically, American homes have more televisions than people inside. This study also shows that an average American spends more than 4.5 hours watching television daily.
This news reveals the sad reality that watching television is now considered the norm. It means that the days when kids played hide and seek and parents spent time with their children are almost gone. When I was a kid, I would go outside and play with my friends, make mistakes, get into trouble, explore, and learn from my mistakes. Now kids stay inside watch brainless programs and play video games.
I know I sound like an old Grandpa, however “back in my days” things were much different than today. I don’t want to sound like a “hater” or a “downer,” but it doesn’t take a genius to see where things are heading. Don’t get me wrong, I used to play numerous video games and enjoy Saturday morning cartoons. It just seems like now this is the only thing kids do, and they barely go outside.
Being bullied, getting beat up, and getting into trouble all have made me the person I am today. I know those things aren’t pleasant, however boy am I glad they happened to me. Without those confrontations I would be a completely different person. What’s life without mistakes right?
Let’s move to adults now. Many people enjoy various television programs and movies, is there anything wrong with that? No. I personally enjoy Games of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Walking Dead, Eastbound & Down, and many more. The thing is that I watch those in moderation. I’m not constantly focused on them and make them a part of my life.
There are much more important things in life than “entertainment.” If you’re an achiever or entrepreneur, I’m sure you have a list of goals you’re working on. The reality is that life is short and time is priceless. Wasting your time watching TV is basically throwing your life away. Focusing on what’s important to you, should be your number one priority.
Once again I always use this analogy. When you’re on your death bed, you’re not going to wish that you would’ve watched more television. You will regret that you didn’t do what you wanted to in this life.
It’s not absolute that having a television or televisions in your home is a bad thing. It’s just that you’re better off without one. Do you honestly think that famous people, fashion models, music producers, movie stars, singers, major business men, CEO’s, and athletes simply sit in front of their television everyday? No. They’re out there working their butts off to make something of themselves. To support that claim, below are reasons why you should get rid of your television.
Bad for the eyes
First off, watching television is normally bad for your eyes. Although a lot of experts can agree on the fact that watching TV doesn’t leave a permanent effect on your eyes, they can also agree that it doesn’t have a good effect on them either. Additionally, studies show that focusing your eyes on one thing for a prolonged period can cause eyestrain – which is temporary but still irritating.
Let’s just say that you watch television for more than four hours every single day. Well, you don’t need a medical professional to know that this routine would strain your eyes daily. With that being repeated for a long period of, let’s say, 3-5 years, common sense would tell you that it would have adverse effects on your eyes. This situation can be described by the phenomenon of depreciation – which essentially means that the more you use something, the faster it breaks.
It makes you fat
While you spend hours watching different channels and shows you can sometimes forget that you are just sitting or lying down on your sofa. This fact cuts the number of hours that you can spend doing other activities such as exercising and doing some chores. Additionally, while you’re just moving your body once every few minutes while watching TV, you probably eat while doing so. With this, you double the chance of getting fat because you’re not burning the additional calories you are taking in.
Reduce the radiation
Medical professionals can attest that televisions emit radiation which can be absorbed by you while watching that home appliance. This radiation is not harmful at a certain level. However it can be a cause of infertility or other health problems when the radiation level is high. So, if you get rid of your TV, you reduce the risk of a radiation level that can have adverse effects on your body.
As Banksy’s audio guide states, “This is a piece of sculpture art, and I know what you’re thinking, ‘Isn’t it a bit subtle?’ Here, the artist Banksy is making some sort of comment on the causal cruelty of the food industry. Or perhaps something vague and pretentious about the loss of childhood innocence.”
The guide continues: “The truck contains over 60 cuddly soft toys on the road to a swift death. However, in order to bring them to life, four professional puppeteers are required, strapped into bucket seats, dressed entirely in black lycra, pulling on an array of levers with each limb and given only one toilet break a day – proving that the only sentient beings held in lower esteem than livestock are mime artists.”

The Choose Your Own Adventure book series that many of us grew up on have now been adapted to the world of Breaking Bad. The books in this concept series include You Are A Kingpin, The Desert Lair Of Tuco, and Escape From The Neo-Nazi Pit. The concept itself was thought up by the folks atVulture, and each of the covers was designed by Jon Defreest.
